Must-have summer footwear

June 25, 2014

As a stylist, I am constantly putting together shopping lists for my clients in order to identify the pieces that their wardrobes and thus, their lifestyles, would most benefit from. While every list is customized to the individual, there are common threads that run through them all.

When it comes to summer footwear, here are the 6 styles that prove relevant again and again, year in and year out, for the widest range of people and situations.

 

The T-Strap Sandal

This flat sandal can be dressed up or down and is flattering to the foot.

 

The Platform Wedge Sandal

Best done in a mid-tone to pale brown or a natural canvas with a woven or cork base, this is the comfortable way to wear heels in the summer.

 

The Canvas Sneaker

If you have some walking to do or you are wearing a sporty outfit, a classic canvas sneaker in a neutral color always makes sense.


The Heeled Dress Sandal

Because summer weddings and other seasonal celebrations are inevitable, keep a heeled dress sandal in black or nude-for-you on hand.

 

The Leather Slide

Whether in the form of a flip-flop, a preppy Jack Roger or the season’s it-sandal, the Birkenstock, a leather slide will serve you well.

 

The Peep-Toe

As either a flat or a heel, the peep-toe is an elegant and lady-like way to show off your pedicure.

Of course there are many other styles of summer footwear that can make stylish and useful additions to a modern wardrobe – the espadrille, the d’orsay sandal, heel or flat, the gladiator or cage sandal and even the huarache – but the 6 above, in my humble opinion, are the most versatile and universal. So, take a minute to evaluate your closet and determine what, if any, you are missing. I promise that your wardrobe will thank you!

Awkwafina is Going Strong

November 13, 2019

When we saw Crazy, Rich Asians, the smash romantic comedy of 2018, we all agreed that one of the standout performers in the movie was Awkwafina (Nora Lum) – she was a definite scene-stealer. By the way, where are the sequels? The latest rumor is that filming will start with two movie sequels filmed back-to-back in 2020. Don’t bet the rent money. But never mind, when they do come out I’m sure they’ll knock our socks off.

A Thrilling and Safe Experience

November 06, 2019

I have a subscription to Air & Space, which is a bimonthly magazine that was first published in 1986 and comes from the Smithsonian. It’s especially relevant this year because this is the 50th Anniversary (1969-2019) of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Neil Armstrong’s first words – as he stepped down onto the soil of Luna were, “One small step for man, one giant step for mankind,” as the whole world watched.

Why Do Women Have a Sell-By Date?

October 31, 2019 1 Comment

Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not a morning person. This means that every day I get up, fire up the computer for emails, stagger into the kitchen to make a blistering hot, strong 20 oz. mug of coffee and finally, click on New York’s Channel One to check on the weather and/or news while sinking into the sofa and trying to wake up. Ergo: I hate mornings or as Moss Hart once famously said, “Nothing happens before noon, that doesn’t happen after.”

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
